Digital Commencement Celebration

To celebrate together on April 25, all graduates received a link to a virtual celebration. The link takes students to a platform with congratulatory videos, messages from the EMU community, and social filters so they can share their achievement. The filters (available on Snapchat, Instagram, and Facebook) give grads the opportunity to wear a virtual grad cap while celebrating with balloons, confetti, and music. Celebrate with us.

Watch the celebration video on YouTube and follow along with #TRUEMU2020 on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter.

Save the Date: To be determined

Eastern Michigan University will host a traditional in-person ceremony for our spring 2020 graduates that will take place at a later date to be determined. EMU President Smith said, “We are sorry to have postponed this year’s celebration in light of the health crisis and public health directives, but promise to give our graduates an opportunity for a real graduation experience this fall or winter, once it is safe to do so."

Graduating students and Eastern community members will be notified once a date is set. The new date will also be posted on this page, along with information about ordering regalia and tickets and registering for the ceremony.
